Oberlin College is a private liberal arts college in Oberlin, Ohio. It was the first American institution of higher learning to regularly admit female and black students.
In 1833, a pair of Presbyterian ministers, John Jay Shipherd and Philo P. Stewart founded Both the college and the town of Oberlin. The ministers named both after Jean-Frédéric Oberlin, an Alsatian minister whom they both admired.
Oberlin's first two presidents were Asa Mahan, and Charles Finney.
